That's reminiscent of 78009 arriving at Shipston-on-Stour shown on page 100 of Branch Lines of Warwickshire by Colin Maggs.
With kind regards

That tends to tie in with my thinking trains should only occupy roughly 1/3rd of the scenic area apart from everyone's favourite - the lengthy freight train.

Agreed Mick, but sometimes shorter freight trains can be attractive...



True. I also like to see the odd engine + brake van trundling back to base, as it were - something rarely see on exhibition layouts.

Thanks Mick, that gives me an idea for another photo!

I guessed it might. My money could be on the J39 :)

So, the Wrenton rapid response photographic team was dispatched just in time to catch said J39 running tender first with a lone brake van.

Interesting.... no Rapido coupling on one end of the van.

Are all your brake vans like that?

Certainly the ones made from Peco kits. I cut away the coupling housing, fit a small piece of plasticard to fill the gap in the buffer beam and add a tail lamp.

That J39 is still there, waiting for other traffic to pass.
